How fast can your stinger fly?

Hello Folks,

Just wondering how fast can your Stinger fly? The reason, that I asked, because a friend of mine, just broke the our fields record. New Rancho San Antonio record. 133 mph. Mega 3t, 9HECELLS

How fast can yours fly?

Thanks,
genovia

stinger speed

I believe mine goes 90-100 mph but its equipped with a speed 400 motor. However, with a Hacker B20 15L it would zoom! Just analyzed my Avionik F5d:s flight sound with doppler software and it goes about 160 MPH.

ehBob!!!! Can you confirm this speed? Don't you have an identical setup, in both your stinger and you Avionik?

WOW!! That's fast

A mega 16/15/3 on 8Hecells makes the stinger fly a lot faster then speed 400. But I dont have a radar gun so I dont know how fast its going. I probably could beat 133 with brushless in a vertical drive pulling out fly by!

9HCells, what marked the 133 mph........... I don't think any of you guys here can beat it. Seriously


You know why? Planekrazy had a lot of help from the wind LOL.......Not even that.... He dared flying this fast stinger, by using tape, to tape the wing down, because every thing was packed inside. Display of low, low dive.. ASK ehBob. There where 5 of us by Planekrazy side, Kasra was taking the speed on his radar gun. David was taking pic. Rob was hiding behind me, and I was hiding behind the pilot

Man, if you own one of these planes, consider yourself a well versed pilot. No kidding, stingers are fast

The Stinger is designed to have the wing held on by tape. It's not really that out of the ordinary. A lot of the F5D planes use to use tape instead of bolts.
My Skat was clocked some years back at 113mph on a 6.0V and 7 cells. Not bad for $8 of motor I've never clocked my Stinger or Cypher in a dive but my Avioniks are over 160mph without any problem, and that's not diving

If you can fit an 05 into a Stinger I would be VERY impressed!

150-160 MPH for an F5D setup is typical. For something currently competitive I would expect more.

Rob,

Here a good match up, when we all meet again. Your Avioniks, Kasra's Stinger, Merhdad's stinger (See, what you get for selling your stinger, you don't have one anymore. I was going to trade my Hacker with you Jeti ESC, as Merhdad suggested) And see who has a rock solid speed OOhhh. Don't forget, I'm scratch building my own Pylon Racer

Steve C. put a Hacker B40 in his Hummer which really isn't that much bigger than a Stinger. He gets an honerary "Brass Huevos" award for that
